Plaxtol Players has many members, aged from 12 to 70+, there is no age limit. We produce one main play each year plus a few additional ‘one-offs’ as and when invited. Apart from the occasional al fresco production, most performances and rehearsals take place in Plaxtol Memorial Hall.
Over the years, our repertoire has varied from song and dance extravaganzas to Shakespeare; pantomime to Alan Ayckbourn; new works to classic favourites. However, many of our acclaimed productions have been admirably written by aspiring Plaxtol playwrites.
In addition to the productions, Plaxtol Players run a themed event each year to raise funds and to promote its next production. They also hold a Summer Barbecue and a Christmas Party for its members.
